INDIANAPOLIS — Juan Pablo Montoya is back at Indianapolis Motor Speedway — one night only, an encore of sorts, in a guest-starring role for Team Penske.

The Colombian is entered in the Brickyard 400 for the explicit purpose of winning at Indy in NASCAR and giving team owner Roger Penske one of the few trophies missing from his collection.

Montoya is not looking for a good points day Sunday and doesn't care about a top-10 finish.

It's checkered flag or bust.

Spaniard Pedro Linhart (69) was a further shot back in fourth, while Americans Bob Tway (73) and Tom Watson (66) shared fifth on 2-under 140.

NEW ORLEANS — Getting enough rest during the NBA offseason is the least of Anthony Davis' concerns. He's just 21.

Coming off his first All-Star campaign with the New Orleans Pelicans in only his second NBA season, Davis is now looking forward to starting Team USA training camp in Las Vegas on Monday and the likelihood of joining the club for the FIBA World Cup in Madrid in August.

"Of course, I'm a young guy, so all I want to do is play basketball right now," Davis said Friday in a conference call hosted by the Pelicans. "That's the only thing on my mind is just play, play, play. I love the game so much."

BEREA — Josh Gordon's off-field issues didn't put him out of shape.

The embattled Pro Bowl wide receiver reported to Browns' training camp Friday and passed his conditioning test as he awaits an appeal hearing with the NFL on a possible suspension.

Gordon is scheduled to meet with the league Friday. He's facing a 1-year ban for violating the substance abuse policy for at least the third time. Gordon was suspended for the first two games last season but still led the league with 1,646 yards receiving and scored nine touchdowns.

BERGERAC, France — Ramunas Navardauskas gave Lithuania and his American team a stage victory Friday at the Tour de France. Now cycling's great showcase is reduced to this — the race for second place behind Vincenzo Nibali.

The Italian, who has all but won the yellow jersey, cruised to the finish in Stage 19 in the rain-splattered pack behind the Lithuanian's breakaway. Only a mishap of the highest order during today's time trial would deny Nibali victory in Paris on Sunday.

With cool and methodical racing, Nibali has bit by bit built a lead of more than seven minutes on his closest rivals, much more against many others. Frenchmen Thibaut Pinot and Jean-Christophe Peraud and Spaniard Alejandro Valverde are vying for second and third.
